Winning Hat-Trick for So You Think Filly
Progressive filly Dirty Thoughts (3f So You Think x Sheer Fantazee, by Testa Rossa) just keeps improving with racing and posted her third successive win at Moonee Valley on Saturday.
The Matthew Ellerton and Simon Zahra trained filly was unplaced when fifth on debut back in February, but has won each of her three starts since then scoring at Geelong, Sandown and now Moonee Valley in an open fillies event over 1200m.
She raced on the pace and forged clear to win by a length and a half and has now won over $120,000 in prizemoney.
"We’ve raised the bar every time and she’s gone with it. I loved the way she dogged it to the line today,” said Simon Zahra.
"She’s a real professional, she’s got good gate speed and puts herself in the run. She’s a fit horse and she probably looked better today that she did at Sandown, I thought.
"It’s exciting for the owners. She was only a cheapie at the Melbourne Yearling Sale so they’ve got their money back plus more."
Dirty Thoughts was a $16,000 Inglis Premier purchase for her trainers from the Phoenix Broodmare Farm draft and is the best of three winners from Sheer Fantazee, a half-sister by Testa Rossa to Group II winner and $1.9million earner Grey Song and Group III winner Tonz More Fun.
So You Think has made a fast start to the season reeling off 16 winners since August 1.
